Nine Below Zero, 1952
Influenced by Sonny Boy Williamson I's harmonica playing, Sonny Boy Williamson II, the lead singer and harmonica player on this track, began performing under his name in the early 1940s in order to ride the waves of his success. This 1952 recording for Mississippi's Trumpet Records features his own songwriting and expert blues harp playing. English blues band Nine Below Zero were named after the song in 1979.
